May has been busy and feels like it flew by, but when I think back on the beginning it seems like so long ago.
The girls had their school Race for Education on the 2nd. Thankfully the weather was warm- Evie and Audrey ran hard while Heidi much preferred the chalk that was offered in the pre-K section. :)
|Anyone have an idea what kind of flowers these are?|
The next day I took the girls to our parish festival. Tim headed up the Silent Auction this year and was super busy in the days leading up to and of the festival; my mom and sister helped me out a lot while we were there!
The week before Evie's First Communion her class wore their outfits to school to participate in the May Crowning.
I think every mother held her breath that half day hoping the outfits would stay pristine for the next week. Aside from a few pencil marks, we were good.:)
For Mother's Day Tim hired house cleaners as a gift. The only other time we've had that done was when our Realtor had our houses cleaned when we moved- seriously SUCH a great gift! I could not get over what a thorough job the ladies did and simultaneously felt like writing an apology note for all the supremely neglected areas they tackled.
I also ordered this Miraculous Medal ring for myself.:)
On the 18th Evie received her 1st Holy Communion!
She wore the same veil one of my sister's and I wore- we were laughing because it has an elastic chin strap which we didn't remember at all!
We celebrated her special day afterwards with some family at our house.
Earlier in the week I had ordered a cake from a new bakery downtown in the spirit of supporting small businesses. Well, it totaled over $45. For a cake! Oof. It was a very nice cake and three layers but looking back I should've just gone with cupcakes or something.
|The girls were introduced to the messy delight of packing peanuts|
|Cora's season of 'bottoms optional' has arrived.|
Yesterday spent the day at a local winery with family. I didn't get any pictures but it was such a great day! We unloaded everything at two picnic tables and enjoyed wine (of course) and good food while the kids had lots of room to run and play.
Enjoy the last days of May.:)
